Aluminum & Glass: The Ultra Contemporary Garage Door

Posted Tuesday, May 30th, 2017


Here in the Pacific Northwest, more and more homeowners are choosing entry and garage doors with a more modern or contemporary appearance. Aluminum doors with glass beautifully fuse indoor and outdoor spaces. Best of all, aluminum won’t rust. Perfect for our coastal weather.

The hallmark of contemporary doors is clean lines and classic functional details. This can easily be achieved with glass and aluminum garage doors. At Cressy Door and Fireplace, we prefer Wayne Dalton’s model 8800, 8850, and the newly released 8450. Not only do they come in numerous colors and glass options, they will definitely complement your home’s glass expanses.
